MQM: BA | Class of 2020


I’m originally from Wuhan, the largest city in central China. Electronic engineering was my undergraduate major, but I decided not to be an engineer in my second year at the university. Never limited by my background, I once interned at a fashion company.

I’m in the marketing track within the MQM: BA program. Before I came to Fuqua, I spent two years at Cisco working as a program manager in supply chain. It was an amazing and rewarding journey for me to grow from a fresh graduate to a young professional. However, I wish to navigate my career from operations to a data-driven marketing role after this program. “Woman in tech” is kind of a personal brand I have been trying to build, advocating for gender diversity in the STEM world.

Apart from my work, I love music, ballet, and collecting vintage accessories.
